Who we are & what we do

EduKits exists to inspire and cultivate the next generation of inventors, creators, thinkers and tinkerers.

We’re the brainchild of a Year 8 high school student (yes, you read that right). Michael Nixon was just 13 when he launched EduKits out of Wagga Wagga, a regional town in Australia. He wanted to use this business to share his passion for technology with other kids and teens around the world.

Since our humble beginnings, we’ve gone on to launch workshops, resources and a coding kit of our own which has been sold to customers in over 15 countries around the world.
